Please Forgive

November 19, 2014

Please forgive
Those that be hiding
In  my memory.

Waiting to jump out
Scare, startle me
Please forgive them

And me. ~ Patrice

Did You See The Night?

February 25, 2013

Lucy ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Did you see the night?
Did you see it as it crept
Atop of daylight
Covering each day
With darkness of the night?

Did you see the night?
Morose and sad
Bleeding sympathy to the mad
Whispering night floating through
Corridors filled with sounds
Made to scare, do beware.

Did you see the night?
As it gently held lost souls
Til daylight could unfold
Washing ‘way cold misery
Never to be told.

Yes, I have seen the night
Soft and full of promise
Stars twinkling
In bright nightlight
I did, I did see the night.

Here I Be

May 30, 2012


Here I be
Don’t think
You’ve seen
The last of me.

For here I be
Right where I’m
Suppose to be
You don’t scare
Or terrify me.

Not me
For here I be
Right here
Inside of me.
~ Patrice
